Renovations!

31 Mar

We are currently undergoing some bathroom renovations. I am SO excited!! Decorating and renovating are two things that I really love doing….well, the planning is actually the most fun. I have something that I call my “someday” files….this is were I stash the hundreds of pages I have ripped out of magazine over the last few years.

I keep ideas for everything…pictures of fireplaces that I love (field stone by the way!), ideas for paint colors, decorating ideas, project plans. Basically as I flip through magazines, anything and everything that catches my eye is added to my files. And when it comes time to actually decorate or reno…I have hundreds of ideas and pictures right at my finger tips. I LOVE it!

Something that I really enjoy doing is paging through the pictures and making plans. I have painted our tv room dark indigo blue after a page from a Martha Stewart article, and I just bought a chandelier from Ikea for $45.00…my husband has always wanted an antler chandelier, but of course the several hundred-dollar price tag has kept us from that. My plan for this simple, plain iron-wrought light is to weave our found antler sheds into it. Same look, 1/10 the price! And where did I get this fabulous idea??? That’s right, my lovely file folder!

Interior design is something that makes my heart race and yet, I have little to no natural talent in this area…..but, with the “someday” files, I don’t need talent. I can steal other’s ideas…mix and match to my heart’s content and am left with a home that is “us”, that will never look like an exact copy because it’s a bunch of ideas from a hundred different sources!

My dream bathroom will be some sort of combination of  this….

But of course, I’ll add a little western flair and end up with one that will make me smile as I relax in my (soon to be) clawfoot tub with a drink and a good book!

I can’t wait!!!!!
